Yes. I keep these notes in my crontab

# to change tag on a local checkout..
# cd /usr/src && cvs -q upd -dP -r netbsd-4 .
# cd /usr/pkgsrc && cvs -q upd -dP -r pkgsrc-2007Q3 .
# to make a fresh checkout..
# cd /usr && cvs -qd $CVSROOT co -r $TAG -P pkgsrc
# cd /usr && cvs -qd $CVSROOT co -r $TAG -P src

if your tag is already set in your checkout, all you need to
get the latest version is:
cvs -q upd -dP
